Create and organize teams

Whether you're working with teammates from inside or outside your organization, Microsoft Teams creates a hub for teamwork. Keep your shared files in a single secure location that everyone can access. And with chats, meetings, and calls, everyone has the right tools to stay connected no matter where they are.

Welcome to Microsoft Teams

  • Teams – Join channels or create your own. Hold on-the-spot meetings and conversations, or share files.

  • Meetings – See everything you've lined up for the day or week, or schedule a meeting. Your Teams calendar syncs with your Outlook one.

  • Calls – If your organization has set this up, you can call anyone from Teams—even if they're not using it.

  • Activity – Catch up on all your unread messages, @mentions, replies, and more.
